Glass Houston shower doors offer an elegant and attractive look to your bathroom. They are easy to clean and reduce the risk of mold and mildew compared to shower curtains. However, regular shower glass can corrode over time and start to look cloudy, stained, or etched. Also, they often require daily cleaning to keep looking clear and clean.
Instead, we offer shower glass with protective coatings for a low-maintenance solution. ShowerGuard® doors offer advanced protection from corrosion with their protective coating. This helps keep your glass looking new and crystal clear for years to come. In addition to a longer lifetime for your shower enclosure, they also offer peace of mind and convenience, as you won’t have to worry about cleaning them every single day. If you’re considering a new shower enclosure, consider shower glass with this technologically-advanced protection. There are several advantages of having these shower panels and doors in your home.
Benefits of ShowerGuard Houston Shower Doors
Over time, heat, humidity, hard water, soap scum, and even cleaning solutions can cause your shower glass to look dull, foggy, or even discolored. Houston shower doors with ShowerGuard protection eliminates these issues. This type of glass has special coatings fused to the glass for permanent protection. While glass may seem like a smooth surface, microscopic imperfections naturally occur in glass. These unseen crevices allow dirt, soap, and grime to build up and make your doors look dull. However, protective coatings help even out the surface so these impurities can’t take hold. This not only helps protect your Houston shower doors for years to come, it also makes them easier to clean.
The problem with spray-on coatings for shower glass is that they wear off over time. This means either temporary protection for your doors or reapplying frequently. For example, some may last three years, and others may only last days or weeks. This means extra work for you just to keep your Houston shower doors in good condition for years to come. In addition, you’ll also have the added costs of buying these products over and over throughout the life of your shower glass. Between the expense and hassle, these products can be inconvenient. Also, there’s a chance of missed areas or improper applications which could make them less effective.
Instead, ShowerGuard doors offer permanent protection because they go through a treatment called ion beam processing to incorporate the coating right into the glass itself. This proprietary technology evens out the glass surface during manufacturing, leaving no crevices behind where chemicals and minerals can hide and wreak havoc on your shower glass. This means your Houston shower doors last longer, stand up to corrosion, and stay clearer longer. They are also a low-maintenance option for your bathroom.
Easy Cleaning and Maintenance for ShowerGuard Houston Shower Doors
Our Houston shower doors are easier to clean because they use ShowerGuard technology that helps repel water and reduce contaminants on your glass. There’s no need for lots of scrubbing or expensive specialty cleaning products. In fact, they can reduce cleaning time for your shower doors by up to 90%.
The first thing to keep in mind is to use non-abrasive materials like a soft cloth or sponge. Most people choose microfiber cleaning cloths because they are soft and effective for cleaning shower glass. Paper towels, scrubbing sponges, cleaning brushes, and other similar cleaning tools can scratch the surface of the glass and create small footholds where impurities can hide and damage your glass, so keep this in mind while you clean your Houston shower doors.
Also, the type of cleaning solution you need depends on the type of water your home has. For soft water, you simply use an ammonia-based glass cleaner like Windex®. If you have hard water and water spots disappear with vinegar, you’ll need an acidic cleaner. A great option is just a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar. However, if you have hard water and mineral spots persist after using vinegar, you’ll need a mild abrasive cleaner like Soft Scrub® All Purpose Cleanser. This will help keep your glass shower doors clean and attractive.
It’s important to keep in mind that using coarse or sharp materials on your doors may harm the coating and will require Houston glass repair or replacement to correct. Also, abrasive cleaning products like many powdered cleansers can also damage the special coating on your ShowerGuard doors, so it’s important to use only recommended products and cleaning solutions.
Shower Glass Warranty
In addition, ShowerGuard glass comes with a warranty against visible corrosion, discoloration, and stains for up to ten years. Therefore, you can rest knowing that your shower doors will look clear and beautiful for years to come. However, remember that improper maintenance, such as using the wrong cleaning tools and products, may void the warranty.
